Watch this: HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 race to shops in CNET UK podcast 382

The race is on! Samsung and HTC's brand new flagship smartphones hurtle into shops this week -- but you can only buy one of them.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is in selected British shops right now, but you can only fondle it under the watchful gaze of Phones 4U staff as it can't be bought until 11 April.

By contrast, you can take home an HTC One M8 today, after HTC rushed the new phone onto shelves mere minutes after it was officially announced this week.


Yes, it's the CNET UK podcast, not-even-slightly-live from our London studio every week, as regular hosts Rich Trenholm, Andy Hoyle and Luke Westaway bat around the week's technology news like a trio of kittens dipped in sherbet.

Speaking of new phones, we meet UK network EE's first own-brand smartphone, the EE Kestrel , netting you 4G data speeds for just £100. We make plans to stay up late for series 4 of Game of Thrones, and find out whether Facebook is going to poke its way into virtual reality with the acquisition of Oculus.

And as CNET becomes a global website with a brand-spanking-new look, we answer your questions about the future of UK news, apps and of course this 'ere podcast. There's been a few teething troubles and a few changes are still to be made, so bear with us as we bring you a new and improved CNET -- check out the podcast for more details.
